indian point nuclear power point with supplies about a third of the electricity of new york city. do you support them in that effort? rozum: yes, i do support the governor to close indian point. i hope that he will take up a similar effort to eventually shut down the nuclear power plants along ontario. i think nuclear power, it's an energy source of the past. is expensive. it should not be relying on federal subsidies anymore. the national academy of sciences has said that any level of radiation from a nuclear power plant is dangerous to our health. so we need to be moving forward. the costs of nuclear power are socialized, and the health care costs that we have are people that are exposed to radiation. i do support, i support governor cuomo's efforts and to support a transition to renewable clean energy economy, and save economy that does not rely on fossil fuels or nuclear power. >> moderator: dan maffei, would you support what the governor wants to do by closing indian point? maffei: there's no question we have to get to work towards a clean energy a comic book we're doing a lot of th

chamber of commerce,, and recruit military llc, from big cities to small towns, from convention centers to american legion posts. if you're not into one of these events, i strongly encourage you to do so. there he will see firsthand the quality of these returning servicemen and women, employers who understand their value, and legionnaires who are dedicated to improving their lives. the men and women who fought for this country should have to fight for a job when they return home. veterans, their families and american legion will keep working to revive our nation's economy. efforts to improve opportunities through licensing and credentialing, for job fairs and business development must continue in earnest. for mainly newly minted veterans the ability to get a job and earn a decent income has been diminished because of the sacrifices made in uniform. that is why we simply must come up with a solution to a problem that has been with us for years. unfortunately, it has gotten worse. the v8 claims backlog. i would challenge anyone in addition to recall a time when the amer
